Digital Legacy Box

Our grandparents and parents stored all their pictures and memories in boxes (or house attics), with the intent of leaving a reminder for their children or grandchildren. But as the new generation comes most of our pictures and memories aren’t stored in physical boxes like the ones our grandparents gave us, but on computers (or on the “cloud”). Also considering worldwide the number of digital pictures increases annually (further reading ), what are we going to leave our children/relatives? (lots and lots of GB for them to make sense of)

The idea is to design and Develop a Digital Legacy Box (DLB) application where people can leave reminders for their relatives after they pass away. The application will encompass travels, important life changes etc. by linking different accounts of a certain person (facebook, twitter, flickr, linkedin, travel apps, etc.) and display them to the relatives after that person passed away.

Bonus: How do we distinguish between a person passing away and one who stopped using social networks ?
